29 gallon, what to do???

Hey guys. I have a 29 sitting around. It has stock lights so I was thinking a Fowlr and maybe a pred fish or 2. I have a 120 mixed so I wanna do something different and not have to buy lights. I also have a 60 gal with a fluval 405, maybe I can do something with it. What are your guys' thoughts?
Thanks for any input!

The larger the tank the more options you are going to be opened up. A 29 is a fine tank, but can be limiting with choices in fish. Just some food for thought. Look through liveaquaria and see if something jumps out as a 'I GOTTA HAVE THAT' and try to build around it.

in the 29 you could probably get 3 smaller predators now in the 60 your options open up a little more

And easier to manage water quality since predators can be more messy of an eater depending on what is chosen.

Now that I have thought about it. I think I will build the 60. What is the best hob skimmer for the 60?
